Wait ’til Captain Keenan hears about this! Y’all can call me Colonel now.
I was honored to speak to the Robert G. Shaver SCV Camp in Jonesboro this week. There were 16 members present, and we had a lot of fun at the Fish Boat Restaurant.
We talked about the 3rd Arkansas Infantry and Hood’s Texas Brigade under Gen. Robert E. Lee during the Maryland Campaign.
I suppose the lecture went well enough…they made me an Honorary Colonel. That’s quite a step up from my High Private status in the 3rd Arkansas reenactors unit. As icing on the cake, they shared a clipping from the Jonesboro Sun that ran on Aug. 17th.
Many thanks to Ray Jones and to all who came out.
